The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products under the agency's jurisdiction. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical or mechanical hazard. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products - such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters and household chemicals – contributed to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 40 years.

Federal law bars any person from selling products subject to a publicly-announced voluntary recall by a manufacturer or a mandatory recall ordered by the Commission.

Thanksgiving Safety Tips

Download these NFPA safety tips for Thanksgiving

The kitchen is the heart of the home, especially at Thanksgiving. Kids love to be involved in holiday preparations. Safety in the kitchen is important, especially on Thanksgiving Day when there is a lot of activity and people at home.

Cooking fires top list of Consumer Reports safety concerns during the holidays

Leading the Consumer Reports list of accidents is cooking fires, followed by injuries from knives, cookware, food processors, microwaves and blenders. It's also important to note that during this time of year, still more injuries occur when people attempt to use turkey fryers, a practice NFPA greatly discourages.

NFPA’s 2013 "Home Fires Involving Cooking Equipment" report states that in 2011 Thanksgiving was the leading day for home cooking fires, with three times as many fires occurring on this holiday as any average day of the year. Christmas comes in second, with Christmas Eve rounding out the list in third place. 

Now that we're into November, let's do our part to practice cooking safely. We all know that it gets chaotic around the holidays, but if you can carve out (oh! no pun intended!) just a few minutes to review NFPA's cooking safety tips, it'll go a long way to protecting you and your family from harm. So, before you start that mad dash to plan your menu and grocery shop, take a moment to download the cooking safety checklist and infographic and read through the information thoroughly. These and our videos are also great to share with other members of your family and your friends, so send them an email today!

In the end, no matter where you find yourself this holiday season, NFPA has a whole suite of great resources to help you plan a wonderful, safe holiday meal. So go ahead, check out our Cooking Fire Safety Central webpages then relax and enjoy this special time of year with the ones you love.

Safety tips

  • Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food.
  • Stay in the home when cooking your turkey and check on it frequently.
  • Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be hot and kids should stay 3 feet away.
  • Make sure kids stay away from hot food and liquids. The steam or splash from vegetables, gravy or coffee could cause serious burns.
  • Keep the floor clear so you don’t trip over kids, toys, pocketbooks or bags.
  • Keep knives out of the reach of children.
  • Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer are not dangling off the counter within easy reach of a child.
  • Keep matches and utility lighters out of the reach of children — up high in a locked cabinet.
  • Never leave children alone in room with a lit a candle.
  • Make sure your smoke alarms are working. Test them by pushing the test button.
